We were fortunate enough to dine at Epic’s eight course Chef’s Table. Oh! My! Gosh! Each course was a study in food art, brimming with a variety of flavors to delight the palate. As amazing as the food was, and it was enviably delicious, the...real star of the dinner was Jamie Keating, the chef and co-owner of Epic with his wife, Melissa. This chef is a culinary dynamo! Despite what seems to be chaos to the uninitiated, his kitchen runs like a well oiled machine. It’s worth the price of the Chef’s Table seating just to watch Jamie and his staff in action. I’ll do my best to add pictures of this incredible experience (sometimes it doesn’t work). The Death by Chocolate dessert preparation at our table by Adam was riveting! Descriptions of each course would make this unreadably long, but each course was equally tantalizing: Char Siu Bao, Pan Seared Sea Scallops, Foi Gras & Chanterelle Mushrooms, Copper River Salmon, Long Weekend Detox (sorbets & delicate cucumber rolls), Dry Aged Ribeye, The Ploughman’s Lunch, and Death by Chocolate. Go! Whatever it takes to reserve a seating, do it! You will not regret it!More

Bartender Jordon B. is incredible! My first visit and he made me feel so at home. Love the vibe of Epic. Library themed, which is cool! The food was so good. I ordered the Filet of Beef Au Poivre dinner. Possibly the best Filet I've...ever ate (and I've ate lots of them!). Jordon makes amazing martinis!More

This restaurant lives up to its name - Epic. The well-trained staff provided just the right touch in delivery of food and beverages. The food was a tremendous find, and in a city where I did not expect to find it. For much of our...dinner, I could have sworn I was at a Michelin star restaurant in Chicago or Washington, D.C. Pre-dinner drinks were prepared expertly and were delicious. We selected the five course dinner, and there were at least four alternatives to courses two and four. The meal was plated and served in a very fine manner. I came away impressed and gave the owner and staff my compliments. I will return.More

I have been going to EPIC for years. Not once have I ever been disappointed with the quality of food and service. Jamie is probably one of the best if not the best Chef in this area. If you enjoy fine dining and being pampered,...experience EPIC. Pete MaisanoMore

Unbeatable fine dining. We both said this was the best. restaurant. Ever. Unexpected treasure in Columbus, Ga. Service, ambience, food, wine all amazing. We’re frequent fine diners in Atlanta and elsewhere so have a good basis for comparison. They currently serve prix fixe dinners due...to COVID. The heirloom tomato salad was the best I’ve had anywhere. Lobster bisque outstanding. Beef tenderloin, osso bucco, pumpkin cheesecake, triple chocolate dessert, all highly recommended. Only thing I would change: tilt the ceiling spotlights upward to avoid being in the line of sight of diners. This would be a fab special occasion choice or good any time you want a quality experience. We had no dinner reservations (unsure when we would arrive in Columbus) but they graciously fit us in within 25 minutes even on Saturday, seating us comfortably on linen sofas while we waited. The restaurant earns its name.More

I went with my husband to celebrate our anniversary. This is our first time back since the pandemic and it is still great. They have taken the necessary precautions for the virus whilst still providing great service and food. We had cocktails, appetizers, main and...dessert all were delicious. I am looking forward to our next visit.More

This was our second visit to Epic. Our first time the food was quite good, but the service was sketchy. Boy, has that changed! You couldn’t have asked for better service! Tyler, our waiter, was spot on as were the other service people. Georgie was...the lady in charge of, among other things, the flatware, which was changed at every course. She was interesting to talk with. It was my husband’s birthday, and on the huge serving plate with his peach cobbler was “Happy Birthday” written in chocolate, and a candle with a raspberry as a holder. So cute! One friend made mention, only to us at the table, that her drink was not as lemony as she expected. Later in the meal Tyler presenter her with another, similar drink out of the blue! How he even heard her mention anything we don’t know. We finished about 9:30 or later, and asked Tyler about getting a taxi or Uber to get back to the hotel. He said to give him a minute. He returned, and we went outside to find him waiting with the owner’s SUV to give us a ride to the hotel. Talk about the coup de grace! Epic went that extra mile in every way and gave us an evening to remember!More

My wife & I made a reservation for two days after Christmas and drove two hours from home to celebrate the holidays at we what consider one of the very best restaurants, coast to coast, and were rewarded with a special evening. We began as...usual with the Epic's superb.lobster bisque. Then, a snag: this night, the usual fois gras was not on the menu this evening. It is my favorite entree, I mentioned this to my server. She went into the kitchen and told the chef, He came out with a pan and made it in front of me. WONDERFUL. SAVORY. MEMORABLE. Yes, Epic is easily the best restaurant in Columbus. But that's just a start. Since I've dined on 4 of the 7 continents (who counts Antartica & Australia?), Epic is on my personal list of one best in the world.More

I have eaten at EPIC twice now, and I have to say the restaurant is a show stopper! Beautiful decor, top-notch service, and cuisine that would be considered gourmet.
